that have some of hollywood's biggest stars on the hunt. will the real beverly hills cops be able to crack this case? >> you know what that means. >> that was a good movie, "beverly hills cop." hopefully the dog will find its way home. >> this came out of the blizzard up in boston. check out this video. it went wildly viral. the guy shoveling the finish line of the boston marathon. everybody trying to find out who it was. well the snow is -- that has been solved and we'll get into that in a little bit. we'll begin with that new storm on the way, more snow coming for so many already buried under feet of snow from that monster storm and, ginger i know you're tracking it again. >> we have new images. you have to see this from space to see that storm that left all
of that snow. you can see the nor'easter coming in. the clouds on the right and see the comma that that big old storm moving through at night, so a beautiful image from there. not so beautiful on the ground. i know a lot people from connecticut, nashua new hampshire, more than two feet of snow. so many places still doing this today and unfortunately that's right, robin, we have more coming. freezing rain advisories hundreds of schools closed back in the great lakes. columbus right now, ohio getting into it. cleveland too but look at the winter weather advisories going through new england and maine. that is where the heaviest snow will fall tonight through early tomorrow. for new york for boston it will be much lighter but just a little icing on the cake that nobody really is looking forward to. turning colder too. i can promise you this. it is going to be frigid by the weekend. it'll feel subzero in so many places along the northeast. so things are not warming up. >> we'll have january weather. okay ginger thanks very much. we move to that terror deadline expiring this morning.
isis threatening to kill more hostages if a failed female suicide bomber is not released. brian ross here with the latest as the drama unfolds. good morning. >> good morning. there's not much time left before the new isis deadline expires. according to a message read by the japanese journalist hostage read online. isis says this 44-year-old convicted terrorist, sajida al rishawi, must be turned over by jordan before sunset today iraqi time or the captured jordanian air force pilot will be executed. >> if sajida al rishawi is not ready for exchange for my life at the turkish border the jordanian pilot will be killed immediately. >> reporter: if the swap goes through, authorities say a dedicated al qaeda terrorist with close ties to the leaders of isis will be set free. authorities say she was a fanatical killer taking part in a 2005 attack in which 60 people were killed many of them
attending a muslim wedding. authorities fear she will emerge as a terror role model. >> it may lead women who are inspired by her not being a wife or caregiver but an actual murderer. >> reporter: the decision by the king of jordien to negotiate with isis came despite u.s. opposition to any deals with the terrorists. >> we don't give concessions to other -- to terrorist organizations. >> reporter: although the u.s. did carry out a prisoner swap with the taliban last year to get the release of american sergeant bowe bergdahl. >> the u.s. doesn't make concessions to terrorists except occasionally when it does. >> jordan says it will not deliver the woman unless the terrorists provide proof that the pilot is alive and unharmed and so far there's been no such proof with the deadline looming. >> no actual promise from isis to release him even if the trade starts to -- >> very unclear at this point. >> thanks very much. all right, george now to the latest on the airasia flight
8501 disaster. the lead investigator reportedly saying the less experienced co-pilot was at the controls when the jet started its dangerously fast climb. abc's david kerley is in washington and has been following the story from the very beginning. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, so this morning we know the co-pilot was at the controls when this airasia jet started climbing dramatically but then stalled. but the indonesians are still not telling us was this pilot error only or was there something wrong with the airbus jet? pulled from the wreckage the black boxes show that the co-pilot remini emanuel placell was flying, not the pilot who had ten times the am of flying time. 20,000 hours versus 2200 hours. >> should be able to trust your co-pilots. with 2200 hours, he should have been fully qualified and perfectly capable of navigating even through storms. >> reporter: the co-pilot when the jet climbed dramatically three times the normal rate moving from 32,000 feet to
37,000 feet in just 30 seconds but the jet lost lift. its forward speed stalled falling to the ocean. >> no reason in the world unless something was mechanically wrong this crew should not have been able to recover from a stall. it is not a catastrophic incident. >> reporter: the indonesians say the cockpit voice recorder shows alarm wrsz going off in the cockpit including the one telling the pilots the jet was stalling, something like this. >> stalled, stalled. >> reporter: one report says it is believed the pilot did take over during the wild climb and descent. the nypdindonesians have a pretty clear picture of what happened and provided a 30-day report but not making it public. so they have a pretty clear picture but we don't. this morning we don't know was this only pilot error or did something go wrong with the jet that contributed to the crash? something that could be fixed in the other 4,000 airbus a320s which are flying around the world today, george. >> so more questions to be answered. thanks very much.
counting down to the super bowl now. more security than ever this year. the latest technology is being deployed to counter possible attacks amid heightened concerns about threats from isis al qaeda and the lone wolves they inspire. pierre thomas is in phoenix with the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. the super bowl is supposed to be about fun and games but law enforcement is planning for every nightmare scenario. those horrific attacks in france very much on the mind of authorities protecting this year's super bowl as thousands of fans pour in. in an exclusive interview inside the stadium, the homeland security secretary warned of a new stage in the fight against terrorism. >> more lone wolf style attacks. more smaller scale attacks. our challenges in homeland security are evolving. we have more concerns about domestic-based acts of violence. >> reporter: while he says there are no specific credible threats against this weekend's game they're prepared to respond by
any means necessary. this u.s. customs black hawk helicopter part of a fleet of aircraft guarding the super bowl from above. the airspace is restricted so if an aircraft comes too close it's a job for this crew and others to escort it out. also in the air fighter jets like the one i flew in last year. if they do not respond, they will use missiles to shoot them down. law enforcement is now deploying the latest in technology high-tech scanners to search every item comes into the stadium. what are you looking for? >> we're looking for any weapon bombs, weapons of mass destruction. >> reporter: katy perry's costume, everything gets checked out. >> her stage came in and have the port ao-potties and paraphernalia, jerseys, everything. >> reporter: for the first time we see what it reveals and they're using x-rays to see everything. look there, he's able to zero in
and do close-ups hunting for any anomaly. officers will be wearing portable radiation detectors and there will be bomb-sniffing dogs. bottom line police are taking no chances so everyone can have fun. robin. >> every precaution. all right, pierre thank you. now to a major development in the investigation into that deadly fire at a maryland mansion. a faulty electrical outlet sparked the blaze which was fueled by a dry christmas tree. abc's bazi kanani has the latest and joins us this morning from annapolis. good morning, bazi. >> reporter: good morning, robin. out here we see christmas decorations still up at the gates of the decimated estate. this morning the grieving family of the children say they hope their immense loss will raise awareness about fire safety and remind us all to cherish our loved ones. this morning, alarming new details about what sparked the devastateing fire at this 16,000-square-foot maryland
mansion killing tech executive don and sandy pyle and their four grandkids. investigators telling abc news it started with a faulty electrical outlet on the floor right by a 15-foot christmas tree. >> there was combustible material that was on top of the outlet so the tree was connected to the outlet. >> reporter: that christmas tree drying out 60 days after it was cut igniting the inferno in the great room. the family sleeping in rooms nearby. >> the fuel from the christmas tree itself is what created the significant amount of fire and heat. >> reporter: as demonstrated in this fire research video, flames racing through lofty open rooms means plenty of oxygen to fuel the blaze, a growing danger and many modern-style homes. in this case plush furnishings or ornate rugs also proving hazardous. there were smoke alarms in the mansion, but even if the victims heard them there was little
time to escape. >> the chain of events occurred within two to three minutes. >> reporter: there about 230 christmas tree house fires each year and they are often deadly. the medical examiner has not yet determined the cause of death for the six fire victims but fire experts say most house fires victims die of smoke inhalation and they say that's one of the reasons we should close bedroom doors when we sleep to block out some of the smoke in a fire emergency. robin. >> all right, bazi, thank you. there are no words. now to amy with this morning's other top developing stories. good morning, amy. good morning, everyone. we begin with new concerns about the measles outbreak out west. authorities in arizona are monitoring 1,000 people who may have been exposed including 200 children who have been to an urgent care center in the phoenix area which an infected woman recently visited. so far 95 cases confirmed across these 8 states and mexico most
in california linked to a disneyland visitor. most of those infected were not vaccinated. dr. richard besser joins us with more on this outbreak. the supreme court has halted three executions in oklahoma because of questions about a drug used in the procedure. among the death row inmates temporarily spared richard glossen who was scheduled to die tonight. critics claim the sedative used by oklahoma and other states is cruel and inhumane. federal reserve policymakers say the economy is growing at a solid pace but will not raise interest rates until the middle of this year. the likelihood of that rate increase triggered a sell-off on wall street wednesday. a reminder millions of americans are not benefiting from the growing economy. new figures show one out of every five children in the u.s. now depends on food stamp that, is nearly twice as many children as before the recession. mitt romney last night called for a national war on poverty while speaking to
students in mississippi. he did not say whether he is running for president again but he took time to accuse hillary clinton of being, quote, clueless on job growth and foreign policy. well an arsonist is on the loose after he was caught on camera setting a truck on fire. can you see him pouring liquid just moments before that pickup explodes in flames. he then jumps into a getaway van. a car belonging to the owner of that truck was set on fire just last year. well finally they say a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work but not if it turns out like this. take a look as this ice fisherman hooks a fish reels it in gets it out of the water and tries to get the hook out but he can't so he puts the fish down to go get something. he waits till the man leaves look at that and then gets into the hole. but guess what, he takes the fishing pole with him. so that fisherman will not be catching any more fish for the day. oh a little too late. he runs out to get it and goes
woop right down the hole? smart fish. >> strong fish. >> amy, thanks. we'll move to a wave of smash-and-grab robberies in dallas where thieves are ramming vehicles into stores making off with atms. abc's ryan owens has more on the new steps police are taking to stop these criminals. >> reporter: like this playing out coast to coast, thieves smashing through stores trying to grab the atm. here in dallas it's happened 20 times this month. they hit this nail salon last week. >> this car came back and forth at least seven times at very high speed. >> reporter: dallas business owners have had enough. so have police. they're forming a special task force to deal with the recent rash of smash and grabs. >> a lot of these stores are small convenience stores. they're individual owners trying to run a business. >> reporter: police suspect the bandits might be part of an organized ring because the smash and grabs have all happened between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. in the morning targeting smaller atms
that only weigh a couple hundred pounds and the thieves are gone within 90 seconds. one more thing they all have in common they're almost always caught on tape but here's the problem. all of these thieves are wearing hoods and they're driving stolen vehicles. which they almost always ditch. bandit as cross the shouldn't have a similar m.o. in the last week they hit from portland to des moines to detroit where these two wrap a chain around an atm and make off with 4 grand. in tampa seconds after this smashes through the window the she was have what they came for. in dallas the suspects haven't been so lucky making off with just two of the atms they targeted. but police worry with a crime this violent it's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, dallas. >> and they're going to keep going after them because some of these atms can have about $20,000 in them. >> they need gps trackers on those machines and maybe they'd be able to find the criminals. >> a great idea.
>> okay. >> consultant company right there. >> always doing business. >> you know, one of the images going viral from the snowstorm was this guy shoveling the finish line of the boston marathon. the mystery of who he is has been solved and this morning, he's telling us why he did it. it's the good deed dominating headlines. a single person captured on camera clearing a boston street during tuesday's storm but take a closer look. they're not just shoveling any old road but a special part of the city the boston marathon's finish line. the photos instantly going viral. but the good snow-maritan's identity a mystery. # whoshoveledthefinishline. >> the so-called boston shoveler coming forward. >> it's a strip of paint in the
road but to me it means so much more and didn't want it to be covered by all the snow. >> reporter: 25-year-old chris laudani, a bartender and five-time boston marathoner said he believes this is hallowed ground. >> the greatest place on earth and would never know it by walking by it. it says finish boston marathon but for the people in the race and that live nearby it's so much more than that. >> reporter: to organizers of the marathon commending laudani telling abc news his actions are yet another statement as to what our event means not only to runners but also to americans. >> this is more about the message. we all love the marathon and we all love the city so that's really what it's about. >> well done. >> yeah. it is a strong message that they're sending. >> i don't think anybody will run the marathon in this weather but nice to see it. >> so symbolic. boston strong. >> you need those things when things like that happen. you're heading to arizona. you're heading to arizona. >> can i come? >> for the super bowl.
>> anybody? >> wait till you see the weather. >> so what is the weather going to be like there? >> amy has been looking at her phone going, oh no oh no rain 60s, yes, amy, the rain is coming and look it's all fueled by this tropical moisture. fortunately the rain is coming for tomorrow into friday and then things start to dry out so by the super bowl it will be much drier. can't promise you extreme warmth or anything but, hey, we'll take what we can get. snow up in the higher elevations above 8,000 feet. 8 plus inches and this morning in frosty florida, >> your local forecast 30 seconds away, but first sunny cities brought to you by mazda 6.
